Forcing a SAP Webgui transaction to open in same tab as Fiori Launchpad

Hi all,

I have a scenario in which a SAP Webgui transaction is deployed in SAP Fiori Launchpad and it is required to open in same tab as the fiori launchpad. I am aware that such behavior is standard for non-SAPUI5 following SAP UX guidelines (https://experience.sap.com/fiori-design-web/navigation/), where SAPUI5 apps opens in the same tab, considering portal themes, etc.

I came across some workarounds in order to achieve the desired objective, but i didn't find one that would suit well the situation.

As of SAP note 2403527 (https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/0002403527), since SAP_UI version here is 750, the only workaround available is by means of LPD_CUST transaction, but i develop Fiori tiles only by means of Launchpad Designer.

Is there a way to achieve this behavior?

Kind regards,

Erick.

    Hi all,

    I solved the problem by creating a role in LPD_CUST and following the unsupported workaround explained in note 2403527. Guess there is no other way to achieve the desired scenario.

    Kind Regards,

    Erick

    Hi Erick,

    You can play around with parameters in your launchpad designer -> target mapping so as to display in same window or other tab.

    Hi people, thanks for the prompt response.

    @Wu, I didn't find this blog post before,thanks. Unfortunately our system is on Netweaver, not yet HANA. Therefore the config that is explained in this post does not solve the problem (the mentioned transactions don't exist). The proper way to achieve my objective was by means of SAP note 2403527 but weirdly enough that solution does not work.

    @Chouhan, I do know about these parameter (services/ClientSideTargetResolution/config/enableInPlaceForClassicUIs/WDA = true in the tile's target mapping) but this approach seems not to work for me, unfortunately. This is the solution described in the aforementioned SAP note for SAP_UI 752. I must be missing some point. As of now I am far away from my station but I'll report back as soon as I have tried this.

    Thanks again,

    Erick.
